The ClassLoader task is no longer using the classloading hierarchy - the
initial version did, and it resulted in the expected Linkage errors ( and 
related workarounds ). This was needed in [embed] to work around ant1.5 
limitations - but when I merged I removed all the hacks, they are not needed
in 1.6.

By default it'll just add more jars to the main ant loader - and rely on the
lazy creation of tasks.

The <classloader> task can be extended to deal with hierarchies and
direct/reverse delegation - but the most common use will be to extend the
main ant loader.
